> According to Bloomberg’s Model 3 tracker, by the end of the week Tesla will have shipped it’s 10,000th Model 3. As of March 13, 9,793 Model 3’s have shipped and they’re shipping about 100 cars a day. So, unless the production line is shutdown, we’ll see that goal by Friday. More importantly, Tesla’s goal is to reach a production rate of 2,500 Model 3’s a week by the end of this month, a rate of 10,000 cars a month, with the goal of doubling to 20,000 cars a month by the end of June. It seems like a near impossible goal within 3 months, but shipping 10,000 Model 3’s seems worthy of celebration this week.

If you didn't read it, this is the whole "article".


Get this "h4labs" spammer out of here. Clearly vote manipulating.

Does this mean Tesla has finally solved the battery production problems that forced them to borrow employees from supplier(s) to assemble them by hand? (1) Quoting from the same article: "No $35,000 basic models have shipped as of mid-January."

I live in Boulder, and seeing this headline made me realize that, as much publicity as Tesla gets, there are probably more Subaru Outbacks driving around Boulder than there are Model 3s in the whole world.

It's pretty amazing how much hype some companies generate.
